1. Be willing to learn

Let me burst your bubble, there are not only seven wonders of the world but millions. 2019 has taught us that every person you meet is like a new book, read every page and understand it.

2. To travel is to live 

Always remember that of all the books of the world, the best stories are found between the pages of a passport.

3. Be good but most importantly do good

The purpose of humanity of human life is to serve and to show compassion and the will to help others - Albert Schweitzer.

- 2019 was a success! Thank you so much to everyone who was directly and indirectly participated in making it jubilant. We wish you all great success and may we meet again. 

- For the upcoming peeps in 2020, we can’t wait to see you. Karibuni East Africa!
